In all the years that I have lived in the Netherlands I can count on one hand the number of New Years Eve's that we have spent here. Yesterday was one, two years ago was two. This was taken from our son's apartment on the 22nd floor in the center of Rotterdam two years ago. The bridge you can see is the Willemsbrug spanning the Maas the boulevard is the Boompjes.
Today I begin the New Year with something I have never done before a Nieuw Jaar Duik, in one of the lakes of Rotterdam along with my 7 year old granddaughter (her idea) and 5000 others. Wish me luck, and for all my RR friends - wishing you a very happy, healthy and photogenic 2018 wherever your travels may bring you!
